Bleeding problems, blood clotting problems, anemias, low blood counts, high blood counts, chronic and acute leukemias, lymphomas, and myeloma are among the hematologic disorders for which our patients see the hematology experts on our faculty. The University faculty physicians have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic tests and the latest treatments to deal with the simplest to the most complex hematologic problems.
We have unique expertise in the bleeding and clotting deficiencies and in the diagnosis of abnormal blood platelet function through the use of standard and electron microscopic diagnostic tests. Faculty physicians also have extensive experience in treating malignancies of the blood system including leukemias, myelodysplastic syndrome, Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas, polycythemia, thrombocytosis, myeloma, and macroglobulinemia.
University quality cancer care is provided by the four medical oncologists in the Division of Hematology, with expertise spanning the spectrum from prevention, screening, and early diagnosis through treatment of early disease, to treatment of advanced disease and palliative care. Each oncologist has areas of special expertise to assure that our patients receive quality cancer care unrivaled anywhere in the US. Special programs have been developed in multidisciplinary breast cancer care, diagnosis and screening of patients and families at high risk of hereditary cancers, cancers of the urinary tract, and lung cancers.
